Style Name: Digital to Analog Converter Verified Purchase
I bought a new TV (Panasonic VIERA) and discovered that I need a converter to reconnect to my existing sound system.

I bought a FiiO D3 (D03K). Worked fine. Was very happy with it. Then after a few weeks the thing went bad, produced distorted sound. I got another one. Same story. Finally it dawned on me that it was permanently powered up. So I tried disconnecting the power feed, letting it cool off. And then it went back to working OK. Now whenever I wanted to watch TV I had to first go and plug in the USB power cable; when I was done watching, I had to go and unplug it. I was a slave to this overheating $25+ piece of junk.

Enough is enough. I shopped around and bought this Orei DA21. Seems to be a superior product. It automatically detects whether input is optical or co-axial (the FiiO requires you to set a switch); in addition to the RCA outputs, it also has a 3.5mm headphone output; and the sound it produces is louder and clearer. For the time being it certainly outperforms the FiiO.
==================
Well, it's now been a bit over 2 weeks. Awesome improved sound (compared to the FiiO). Moreover, it's been permanently plugged in and no sign of overheating or misbehavior (by now the FiiO would require being unplugged and allowed to cool).

I bought this to bridge between the optical "out" on the Apple TV and the analog "in" on my NAD integrated amp. I was going to spend 300 bucks or more on an "audiophile" DAC, but I saw this and thought I'd try it out first. Bottom line: I just saved a bunch of money. For streaming my iTunes library, this does the trick. I have PSB Imagine towers for speakers, so trust me, I'd hear the difference if there was one. There isn't.

For those of you out there like me who run a high end receiver for home theatre and music, you know the frustration with Apple TV's lack of a headphone jack or RCA ports so that you can play music on other "zones" that only allow analog sources. So unless you have the most expensive and current model receiver, your music streaming or audio through Apple TV won't migrate to another zone without converting the digital to analog first. This tiny little box was the perfect solution! I leave the HDMI connected to my receiver from the Apple TV for everything else but run an optical cable from Apple TV to the Orei converter box and then run high quality RCA L/R cables to the receiver too. Now when I turn on Zone 2 for example, I can stream music from iTunes or Spotify to my outdoor speakers and control it with my iPhone while my daughter watches a Pixar movie inside our living room. I've been trying to find the best and most affordable solution for a while now and took a chance on this product. It's a great buy and the easiest thing to do. I highly recommend it!

My tv only has an optical output for audio so I needed this converter to hookup my external speakers. The speakers on my tv were crap and I couldn't take it anymore. I chose this one because it has both rca and 3.5mm jacks. For a few dollars more I am able to hook up 2 different ways.

I have a Denon receiver connected to a pair of $3,000 Infinity towers. I was never quite satisfied with the sound. I have used a number of sources, none of them terribly expensive, but all with good reputations. Recently, I bought a WD TV Live media player to stream my MP3 files. I bought the DA21, figuring I could return it if it was terrible, as I suspected it might be. With the good reviews it has receved, I thought it was worth a try. All I can say is WOW! These two little boxes have totally tranformed my sound system. The imaging and detail I hear in these MP3s exceeds anything I have heard before. Drums and bass stand out but are not exagerated. There is a strong sense of seperate instruments and voices that make listening interesting again. Even my wife, an anti-audiophile if ever there was one, noticed the difference. Because of the clear seperation of the voices and instruments, she can understand the words to the songs more easily. Before spending big money on an audiophile DAC, give this little box a try. You may find, as I have, that you are done searching.

The description for this product is very very misleading. It comes with a red sticker on it that states that it will only work with PCM sound. Of course this sticker is not shown in the picture and no reference is made to this in the description.

I have a Panasonic plasma tv. I receive my tv reception through a digital antenna. The tv stations are not broadcast in PCM sound format. There is no setting to change the digital optical audio tv output to PCM. Therefore, the sound comes out as pulsing noise.

So, if you are expecting to listen to tv stations you should make sure that you can control the output of your tv digital optical audio. You will need to see and be able to select PCM as an option.

Other than that, the product seems fine. I am using it with my web based applications on my tv (You Tube, Crackle, Google TV). These broadcast sound in PCM format.

Hope this helps.

Last year I upgraded to HDTV and replaced my 1990s stereo with a Soundbar, with this update I no longer had a headphone jack for late night TV/Movie viewing. I ordered this and now I can use headphones again and not disturb my neighbors (I live in an apartment) or wake up my wife if I want to watch a loud Movie or TV show. The only bad thing about it is, it is line-out audio with no volume control (unless you have headphones with volume control built-in). Luckily the volume is a good level with my headphones, not too quiet, not too loud. I am using this on a Panasonic GT30 50" Plasma TV via the optical out port and a pair of Sony MDR-V600 Studio Headphones.
